Soon to be a Lehigh Mountain Hawk, Lindsay Voltz says the workout program of Castagno is a big reason for her team's success, and that it has prepared her well to join the Patriot League team next year.

Not to be forgotten with the success of the girl's team is Alex Giacco, who will be heading to Wake Forest, and says the success of the girls does nothing but motivate the boy's team to greater success.
